Myself and a girlfriend stayed here in December 2012. The hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas and felt very festive. The Receptionist was very friendly and efficient.
Our Deluxe twin room was comfortable, though not the largest I have stayed in. The air conditioning was very loud and the room was very warm on arrival.
We had a look at the bar menu while having drinks and decided it was rather bland and unimaginative. We decided to eat in Sol Oriens and as it was raining heavily, we took advantage of the lift there from the concierge (David - a most affable chap !!). The meal in the almost empty restaurant was superb - very well presented and tasty. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. After a leisurely meal, David arrived to take us back to the Hotel.
We finished off the evening with a few drinks in the bar, which is large and, for the most part, almost empty. The bar staff were cheery, efficient and friendly. We teamed up with another couple over dinner and had a most enjoyable evening with them and another group who had also been in the Sol Oriens restaurant. Eventually we made our way to our room - the beds had been turned down and a bottle of water and a chocolate left on the side tables. The beds were very comfortable and we had a great nights sleep.
We opted for breakfast in our room the next morning. It was served on time, was well presented and was hot. The breakfast was tasty and we enjoyed it while we discussed the previous night.
All in all a most pleasant stay.
My only complaints were - no mini bar or fridge in the room. More importantly, the hospitality tray contained tea bags and sachets of INSTANT coffee. Being a coffee drinker - I would expect an espresso machine in the room as standard in a 5-star (or even a good 4-star) hotel.
